From the picture I'm guessing it's a hanging dryer for baby clothes or other small items. But I've never seen one like that.

This one goes under the name of a "drying rack", but there is no specific name for them. "Hanger dryer", "portable hanging clothes dryer" are other names you will see.

Nice find, Tony.

Problem with all of the products is that they always seem to have an even number of pegs, and I always seem to have an odd number of socks...

Wear a sandal on the foot without a sock.

tony h : Thanks for the useful link. Phil White and Erik : Thank you guys for your input. By the way, when it comes to a general term for the product, can I call it "a peg laundry airer" without the exact number of pegs?

Thanks a lot!

In the US you'd have to call them clothespins - pegs are different.
